Leeds Conservatoire has been at the forefront of music and performing arts education for over 50 years. They provide the specialist training of a conservatoire combined with the academic rigour and professional development of a university; aligning their curriculum with the needs of today’s dynamic music and performing arts industries. Students are equipped with the artistic vision and entrepreneurial spirit to succeed in a broad range of careers in the creative industries.
Boasting the most diverse undergraduate degree portfolio of any UK conservatoire, they offer specialist programmes ranging from Classical, Jazz, and Popular Music, to Music Business and Music Production, to Musical Theatre, Acting and Actor Musician.
The conservatoire is committed to the individual development of all students, which is reflected in the highly personalised teaching methods. Students are taught in one-to-one and small group sessions, by expert practitioners who possess a wealth of technical and theoretical knowledge, and by visiting high-profile industry professionals.
Their commitment to academic excellence is also shown in the conservatoire’s cutting-edge practice and performance facilities, which they have invested heavily in over the past few years, and through the vast array of professional partnerships and public performance opportunities, they secure for students to increase their industry exposure.
Alongside the commitment to student development, the conservatoire is also committed to making their world-class performing arts education open and accessible to all. In 2019 Leeds became the first conservatoire in the UK to remove audition fees for all of its courses and provides a bursary to cover audition travel costs to those who need it.
